Ephesians #45

Ephesians #45

Paul uses family relationships -- marriage and family -- to characterize ministry relationships (1Th 2:4-12, Eph 5:22-23; Eph 6:1-5). "Submitting to one another in the fear of God" (Eph 5:21). Blessings are given for us to become a channel of them. We need a relationship revolution: (1) there are only two kinds: good and bad; (2) examples of the contrast are the "Orange" and Bolshevik revolutions; (3) good revolutions are based on responsibility personal relationships; (4) every believer has been enlightened, given power, to have profound impact on the world around them (Mat 28:18-22); (5) this begins at home. Marriage becomes a living witness to Christ and church. Family illustrates love among the brethren (2Co 3:6).
